Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Drew Estate MUWAT +11

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member MacMac (Joe).  The cigar provided for this round is the Drew Estate MUWAT +11.

Introducing Jonathan Drew's creation, MUWAT - a most excellent edition to Drew Estate's Subculture Studio. This joint project with Joya de Nicaragua is medium to full in body, and boasts a variety of vitolas booming with flavor. Dark and oily San Andres maduro wrappers conceal a hefty dose of Nicaraguan and Brazilian long-fillers secured by a smooth Connecticut 'Capote' binder. The cigar is hearty and rich, unveiling a deep series of bold yet balanced flavors from start to finish. Layered with complexity - earth, leather, pepper, sweetness, cocoa - the massive 60-ring frame is the ultimate vehicle to savor each of these complex intricacies throughout the slow and cool burn.

This cigar was enjoyed with Crown Royal and coke

Pre-Light: 19 Points of 20 Possible

Dark brown light chocolate color, few veins nothing of the varicose variety, great looking band, cap almost seamless, feels like a tight pack with no soft spots.Aroma is a light tobacco smell.The cigar was well aged and sat for a month in my humidor.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

Clean cut with v cutter, easy light with Kents cheap Chinese torch lighter, lots of smoke, no tunneling or touch ups needed.Ash held of for first third, dark grey in color.Smoke out put remains prolific for entire cigar.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Cap cut really easy with no extra trimming required.The draw was a little snug but did impact the smoking of the cigar.The wrapper had a few veins and bumps but nothing pronounced.Good looking cigar.No construction issues.

Flavor: 33 Points of 35 Possible

I would say this cigar was medium in strength throughout the entire cigar.I thought this cigar very smooth although not overly complex, which is fine considering how much I enjoyed the whole experience.I could not detect any aftertaste or bitterness.If I had to suggest a flavor it would a little caramel with chocolate hints.

Summary

I have smoked a couple of these before and always enjoyed them given the consistent performance and price point.I would like to thank macmac for the review cigar and buddy.This cigar was very enjoyable ,not overly complex but given how well it performed that was not a problem.Would definitely smoke again.
